The position of Mimosa is the winner for us.

Good website no issues

We enjoyed our stay at Mimosa Cottage and found that the reality met our expectations. We were left a small welcome pack of local produce and milk which was a lovely touch, and the property was extremely clean. It was easy to find according to the instructions, the parking is on the end of the cottage, in front of the garage (blue) doors with a decent sized space to tuck into.

We made the most of the view in spite of the weather, if the sun had appeared I can imagine the patio area would be a good sun trap.

The location is great, a few steps down to the front and you are close by to all amenities. It is a steep walk back up to the cottage, but very short.

Bed is comfortable, towels and linens all good and plenty of hot water. There is adequate seating for 4 in the living room, plus a dining table and chairs and the decor and furnishings are fresh, though some while clean and perfectly serviceable are a little dated.

The only cons are that the electric shower in the ensuite is just not powerful enough, and there was a considerable draught from the front door that opens directly into the living space. Hopefully the second can be remedied quickly to save on using the extra heaters provided unnecessarily.

Comfortable , clean , gorgeous view of the sea , central st mawes , loved our week at Mimosa and would love to return for another great holiday , thankyou

Grandson enjoyed his unexpected stay there.

Patio and outdoor area could be improved but adequate. Brilliant location minutes from harbour area. Incredible picture window with amazing views Needs a power Shower in en-suite . Well equipped kitchen . Complimentary local food items a nice touch!

The property (Mimosa) was excellent, super base for the holiday and when you were in the property the location was superb with an ever changing scene outside the window, my only regret is that I don't own the Mimosa

A delightful location with stunning views come rain or shine.

Great location and view .

The sea view is amazing and the location so close to town makes it very easy to leave the car and do day trips to Falmouth or Trelissick by ferry.

The sea view was excellent with lots of activity and the convenience of parking up the car and using the regular passenger ferry was a bonus. We also had the benefit of Doggie Day Care provided by Emma from K9 Capers who are 5 doors down while we visited the Eden Project. We were pleasantly surprised at how close to the village centre we were with pubs etc and a small Co-op.

Lovely cottage with wonderful views. Excellent facilities and everything we wanted. St Mawes is just a short walk away but the very steep hill should be highlighted.

Shabby inside and out. Without the view from veranda cottage only worth £500 per week. If weather had been bad would have been very disappointing.

very impressed with the services of classic cottages.

the location of the cottage was perfect from the front window you could watch all the boats going in& out of the harbour, the local pubs were dog friendly & all the boat trips to Falmouth & the Fall river & bus stops were all within 200 metres. weather was very good & the garden was a suntrap

The property was absolutely perfect, had everything that we needed and was in a truly stunning location. Everything was spotlessly clean and the general presentation of the cottage was to a very high standard. Definitely exceeded our expectations. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to my friends. We had a wonderful 'long weekend' and would have loved to have stayed for longer.

We very much loved the location, the view and cottage itself, we will be coming back at some point. Many thanks.

Great location and view. Good wifi.

Once again a wonderful holiday in St Mawes staying at Mimosa, such a fantastic place to stay. Excellent location and wonderful views

Excellent cottage wonderful views.

We had such a wonderful holiday at St Mawes, the accommodation was all we could have wished for and more. We will be passing on our recommendations to all our family and friends. Thank you.

Mimosa is the perfect holiday cottage in St Mawes, we were all thrilled with the view from the cottage, which kept us enthralled every day. It's location is ideal being just minutes, by foot, from St Mawes' centre and harbour and it's neat, clean and has great bathrooms and a lovely, well stocked kitchen. We loved it.
